Time to kick back and relax? Not with Freshers on the horizon...

June 2019 - Not that we want to worry anyone but you have started to plan for Freshers, haven't you? Your student members might be tripping off soon to enjoy a long summer break but we know that you'll just be getting started on plans for the busiest time of year. So we're pleased to bring you details of summer training sessions timed to get your team ready with a skills refresh and top tips to make the next few months go smoothly.

We've also welcomed another new client to the MSL family and are very pleased to share the Edinburgh University Sports' Union success story. We're always on the look out for good news and interesting projects to share with our community - if you've been working on something you're expecially proud of and want to shout about it, let us know!

We look forward to speaking to you soon,

The MSL System has professionalised how we as an organisation operate as a whole. Students experience a better service from their clubs, and committee members can carry out their roles more efficiently and comfortable in the knowledge that all their club finances and data is being well managed

Server upgrades offer increased performance and security

As part of MSL's programme of continuous development and improvements to the MSL System® and its underlying infrastructure, we are pleased to notify you that your MSL site will shortly be migrated to newly installed servers, which will offer overall increased performance and security. We need to agree with you a date and time for the migration after which the only action required by you is to update the IP address on your DNS ‘A’ records. If you haven't aleady done so, please contact us with your prefered date and time to start the migration process.

MSL passes rigorous PCI DSS compliance validation

We are pleased to inform you that MSL has again successfully passed the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. The PCI Data Security Standard is mandated by credit card brands and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud. Our certification demonstrates MSL's commitment to providing clients with a safe and secure environment for commercial operations, events teams and clubs and societies to do business. If you have any questions about our PCI compliance processes, please contact us

20th November 2019 - Instant access to everything, at any time, no matter what it is – that’s the mantra by which your student members live; from travel information to fast food, gig tickets to current affairs. Your website is a hub of information and opportunities to participate that many students rely upon to support their university and social lives - and so they expect that same feeling of immediacy from your site as they get from ASOS and Amazon.
